UA Program Increases Accessibility for Trick-or-Treaters

News

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Trick-or-Treating is a Halloween classic for many children, and a program at the University of Arkansas is aiming to ensure that all types of children are able to join in the festivities. 

Preschool students receiving services in the autism clinic on the U of A campus were able to practice their trick-or-treating skills in Peabody Hall. 

Aided by technology intended to help their communication, the students employed new communicative skills they are being taught in the program to engage with faculty and staff. 

The trick-or-treaters visited offices in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction to prepare for the big day, which is less than a week away. 

The autism clinic is operated by the special education program at the University of Arkansas.
